A Miami fan who gets it

This is incredibly rare. Granted Brian covers the team, so he has a better understanding than most fans. The facts are pretty much undeniable. The "Big Three" is gone. It's now a "Big Two" and a "Middle Three" (Miami, USF, UCF). Miami had more scholarship seniors this year than FSU and UF combined. They weren't young. Miami isn't building. It just had its best team it will have for a while. Miami needs to replace those departing players with a huge class of talented recruits. Are they doing that? No: 68% of UM's non-kicking recruits are rated 3-stars or worse 15% of FSU's non-kicking recruits are rated 3-stars or worse 13% of UF's non-kicking recruits are rated 3-stars or worse And the sanctions have not even been levied yet. While it likely won't be the death penalty, it will certainly be crippling for a half-decade or greater. Now, through some creative use of 6th-year medical redshirts, the Canes can probably get some of those seniors to come back, which will help them be better than expected next year. And FSU should raise its expectations somewhat because of this. h/t: Nole Resurrected
